Gold price is struggling to extend the upside beyond the critical $1,870 supply zone, despite the extended weakness in the US Treasury yields and the dollar. Increased calls for the global central banks to act to tackle inflation are limiting gold’s bullish momentum. Although, gold bulls continue to benefit from the persistent worries and the recent retreat in the US rates from three-week highs. Fed speculation and inflation concerns will continue to drive the sentiment around the yields and gold price.

Gold Price: Key levels to watch

The Technical Confluences Detector shows that gold price is wavering below the critical topside hurdle of $1,870, which is the meeting point of the previous week’s high and the previous day’s high.

Acceptance above the latter will kick start a fresh advance towards $1,880, where the pivot point one-day R2 lies.

Ahead of that the confluence of the pivot point one-day R1 and Bollinger Band four-hour Upper at $1,873 will guard the upside.

If the bulls flex their muscles, then the pivot point one-month R3 at $1,884 will get tested.

Alternatively, sellers need a strong foothold below $1,862, the convergence of the Fibonacci 38.2% one-day and SMA5 one-day, to take over complete control.

The next critical cushion is seen at $1,857, the intersection of the Fibonacci 61.8% one-day and Fibonacci 23.6% one-week.

The pivot point one-month R2 at $1,850 is the last line of defense for gold optimists.
